Saml2Assertion.CaptureSourceData Method

[Starting with the .NET Framework 4.5, Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) has been fully integrated into the .NET Framework. The version of WIF addressed by this topic, WIF 3.5, is deprecated and should only be used when developing against the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 or the .NET Framework 4. For more information about WIF in the .NET Framework 4.5, also known as WIF 4.5, see the Windows Identity Foundation documentation in the .NET Framework 4.5 Development Guide.]

Exception type Condition

reader is null.


The EnvelopedSignatureReader that is being used to read the data for this assertion should be passed to this method after the </Assertion> element has been read. This method preserves the raw XML data that is read, including the signature, so that it may be re-emitted without changes and without the need to re-sign the data. For more information, see the CanWriteSourceData property and the WriteSourceData method.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
